Smart Phone Case Makers Believe We Want to Get Our Phones Wet

TheStreet (Jan. 10, 2014) — The Consumer Electronics Show in Vegas was flooded with waterproof solutions for your smart phones. Apparently smart phone case makers think we all want to take our phones deep sea diving or at least take them with us in the surf. The solutions ranged from waterproof cases to air tight bags. The goal of each device is to hear your phone ring and answer it all while under water. No tips on not drowning while talking under water or whether the other party can understand your water-muffled talk.

Microsoft's First Windows 8.1 Smartphone: The Nokia Lumia 635

TheStreet (July 15, 2014) — The Nokia Lumia 635 is a successor to 2013's super-popular Lumia 620 model. This new handset is an improvement in nearly every way. Microsoft's first release has a great-looking 4.5-inch touchscreen, a speedy quad-core Qualcomm 400 processor, a new, squared-off design and its the first device to run on Windows Phone 8.1. The new operating system improves many things, most important of which were the long-standing complaints about short battery life. When put to the test, the new Windows phone provided more than a day of heavy use on a full charge. There is also Cortana. Think of it as Microsoft's version of the "OK Google" or Siri.

Amazon Thinks It Can Beat Blackberry at Smartphones

Amazon Thinks It Can Beat Blackberry at Smartphones

TheStreet (June 19, 2014) — Amazon may be late to the smartphone market with its new Fire phone, but it clearly thinks it can do better than Blackberry. Blackberry once owned the mobile phone market, but has never recovered from its decision to keep the keyboard. Ari Zoldan, CEO of Quantum Networks, says the key difference between the two companies is that Amazon has the safety net of its retail operation to fall back on, whereas Blackberry's sole business is the phone. Zoldan says Blackberry isn't going down without a fight though, in its latest earnings report the company said it sold 1.6 million phones. Debra Borchardt reports from Wall Street.

CEO Grant Delgatty says the company just reached its fundraising goals on Indiegogo and expects to begin shipping product this year.
